2010 Linne Calodo "Rising Tides" Paso Robles Rhone Blend

SKU #1149879 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Vivid ruby-red. Explosive, appealing scents and flavors of ripe cherry, candied raspberry and Asian spices; really showing its grenache component today. A perfumed floral nuance comes up with air and carries through a very long, spicy, sharply focused finish. As sexy as this wine is right now, I suspect it will be even better with a couple years in the cellar. (JR)  (12/2012)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2010 Rising Tides is 39% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 26% Mourvedre. Dark cherries, plums, spices and savory herbs flesh out in this vibrant, juicy red. This is another racy, plush offering from Linne Calodo. The flavor profile tends towards the darker end of the spectrum. In 2010, the harvest stretched into mid-November. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. (AG)  (8/2012)

90 points Wine Spectator

 An understated style that combines rich spice, dried dark berry, tobacco leaf and crushed rock flavors, ending up more understated and refined. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2020. (JL)  (3/2013)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Paso Robles

- Located about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this inland AVA enjoys a sunny and hot growing period while its seaside neighbors hang in the fog. Zinfandel is the traditional red grape of choice, though cabernet, chardonnay, and Rhône varietals are gaining favor. Most are made in a fruit-forward, early drinking style.
